Airport SkyTrain worker tests positive for coronavirus

A worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport who works on the SkyTrain has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the airport.

The SkyTrain takes travelers to the airport’s rental car center and to the Georgia International Convention Center and nearby hotels at the Gateway Center.

The free above-ground Sky Train is mainly used by visitors to Atlanta, and is a separate system from the airport’s underground Plane Train that moves passengers between terminals and concourses.

The person who tested positive for COVID-19 works for Crystal Mover Services, which handles operations and maintenance of the SkyTrain system, according to the airport. Other workers are in self-quarantine.

The airport on Friday night took the SkyTrain out of service until April 3 and said shuttle buses would transport passengers to the rental car center and Georgia International Convention Center where the Gateway Center is also located.
